About Me


Hi! I'm Dr. Nicole Caldwell, and I've been teaching children and teens with autism for about 17 years. I hold a Master's degree and PhD in special education with an emphasis on teaching autistic students. I work with children in their homes and online (via video conferencing) to help them learn social skills, life skills, communication and language, and academics.

My background is in special education
, Pivotal Response Treatment, and Montessori. I use these types of teaching methods in a way that is relaxed, natural, fun, play-based, and respectful of the wonderful uniqueness of children and teens on the spectrum.



How Can I Help Your Family?



I work with children and their families in Rockwall, Texas (and the surrounding cities) on:

Curriculum and Book Reviews 


There are so many choices out there for homeschool curriculum! Here, you'll find detailed reviews and information about curriculum and autism books so that you can make informed decisions for your child.


I also create many of my own lesson plans and learning activities that blend academic subjects with the favorite interests and individual learning styles of the students I work with. I love to make learning motivating for your child!

Nothing on this website should be considered legal advice. You are advised to contact a homeschool organization, such as the Texas Homeschool Coalition or the HSLDA for answers to specific questions.
